City of Lubbock
Lubbock is the 11th largest city in the state of Texas. Lubbock falls in the top 100 most populated cities in the United States with a population of more than 300,000 people. In recent years, Lubbock has been described as: “best commute in the US”, “best city for 35 and under”, “best city for new college grads”. (hint: A safer commute could allow for cheap car insurance.)
As you may know, this week is National Veterans Small Business Week. But, you may not know that every November Progressive Insurance has a one-day vehicle giveaway program for some lucky veterans. It’s called the Keys to Progress® Program (#KeysToProgress), Giving Back to Those Who Gave So Much. Since 2013, the program has donated more than 600 vehicles to our veterans and various veteran organizations. It’s not just for cars, either. In 2018, the program awarded an Army veteran trucker with a Freightliner big rig truck (18-wheeler).
Steady economic growth, a low cost of living and growing population make Lubbock, TX a great place to call home and live. Over 300,000 people call Lubbock home and the city is expected to grow 7% through 2022. Our diverse economy and job market outpace many other areas of the United States.

Picture the perfect, melt-in-your-mouth Texas brisket –smoked low and slow creating juicy meat and no sauce. Now picture a recipe for the ideal Texas community–one part big city living with small-town southern charm, sprinkled with a love of college football, a robust economy and unmatched outdoor beauty, and you get Lubbock, Texas. We have a saying around here, “Lubbock or leave it.” Here’s why you’re guaranteed to never leave it.
Although Lubbock is defined by the Census as a large city (more than 50,000), it didn’t reach record growth. Instead, the Census revealed Lubbock reached a new milestone. Officially, it broke 250,000 full time residents and Lubbock County reached 300,000+ residents.
Lubbock is a city of wide-open spaces and believe it or not, there are a variety of outdoor options to stay healthy. Don’t rely completely on health insurance, get some much needed exercise! Whether you prefer exercising on wheels, motors, or sturdy shoes, you can find an outdoor outlet in the Hub City. The plethora of gyms and activity centers can also give shelter in foul weather.

If you are looking for an insurance agency you can trust, look no further than Hettler Insurance. Meghan and the team... are refreshingly professional and easy to work with. I was with my previous insurance agency for two years, but they were no match for Meghan at Hettler. She was able to find the same policy/coverage with a significantly lower premium (with the potential for even more savings after 90 days). Every one of the staff is courteous, attentive, and helpful. Thanks Meghan and everyone at Hettler!read more
Called Hetler twice to get quote for quote on price for 2 auto's and home insurance. Said they would call back to give... quote. If too busy for customer then I sure don't want them to handle my insurance needs.Reply: Been calling 2 Days ago. Placed call each day and never received status of why taking so long to receive call back. POOR BUSINESS STANDARDS.read more
I called another agency first, and wish I hadn't. Ron was very knowledgeable and helpful in providing me with the... information I was looking for. I highly recommend Hettler Agency for your insurance needs!read more
A friend recommended Hettler Insurance Agency for my family’s health insurance last year. As new immigrants, we got... totally lost with what we can choose and how. Mr. Hettler has been so patient to us with full explanation of the policies and all the guidance we need. We are very thankful to him with the insurance package we get. This is the company where the staff are very friendly and they always know what the customers need.read more
Ron Hettler and his staff are the best. I have used Ron for personal and business insurance for 20+ years, with no... regrets. Recently he helped me sign up for Medicare supplemental insurance. We spent a good hour going over the endless inane paperwork, even though I know his compensation for this is next to nothing. Good people, good insurance.read more
What a waste of time trying to get a quote for my business. spent two days filling out their applications, then they... just stop communicating. No word, NOTHING. and no I am not a competitor, like you accused the other negative reviewer of being. You can save yourself a lot of time by calling any other place.read more
I use Hettler Insurance Agency for my car insurance. When I first started with them, they found an insurance company... that saved my like, $80 from what I had found on my own, so I ended up paying $165/month for full coverage. A few months ago, that policy went up to $187/month and I just kinda rolled with it. But yesterday, I decided to give Hettler a call and just ask if there was anything they could do. The fella I spoke with said “sure, we’ll shop around for you and give you a call by the end of the day.”Within the day, I got called back and they had found a plan with the same coverage for $116/month. All that cost me was 2 minutes on the phone.My point is, if you ask your friends on social media who has the best insurance, you’re going about it all wrong. Go to Hettler and they’ll do all the shopping and looking around for you.read more
